PROJECT

Rointe collaborates with CO2 Revolution in the creation of a forest in Pontevedra, Galicia

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Rointe Forest has taken shape thanks to the planting of more than 300 plant species, including trees

The province of Pontevedra has been harshly punished on multiple occasions due to fires. Specifically, the Borela region was devastated by fire in 2006, 2016 and 2017. The last one burned 30 hectares and affected thousands of families. Now, CO2 Revolution joins the Rointe company to repopulate these lands and recover the lost forest mass.

The Rointe Forest has taken shape thanks to the planting of more than 300 plant species, including trees, but also shrubs and grasses. In this way, the variety of species and the selection of native plants allows the generation of biodiversity in the reforested lands. This forest will be made up of pines, cedars, willows and birches, which are trees typical of northern Spain.

Furthermore, with the innovative CO2 Revolution method that combines manual planting techniques with highly technological methods, we generate both environmental and social benefits. With projects such as the Rointe Forest we contribute to combating deforestation by sowing from a drone with our effective smart seeds, while we collaborate with Galician associations to offer employment to people belonging to vulnerable groups.

Rointe, the leading company in electric heating and hot water, intends with this project to do its bit to mitigate the effects of global warming, helping to reduce its carbon footprint. Thanks to its campaign “Register your product and collaborate with our forests”, linked to this reforestation, customers who purchase some of its appliances will be able to register their warranty and thus contribute to the fight against climate change.
